Tropical Cyclone Zane formed in the Coral Sea to the northeast of Queensland on Monday and quickly strengthened during the next 24 hours.
Zane currently has tropical storm-force sustained winds as it approaches the Cape York Peninsula of Queensland.
Landfall is expected across the northern half of the Cape York Peninsula, during the day Thursday, local time. The main threats will be damaging winds at and near the coast along with flooding rains which can cut some of the small towns of the region off for several days.
The satellite image above shows Zane off the coast of Queensland Wednesday night, local time.
Zane is expected to remain a tropical cyclone, although in a weaker state as it moves farther west into the Gulf of Carpentaria later in the week.
At this point, it appears Zane will likely lose its tropical cyclone status before making another landfall, but enhanced rainfall could lead to some flooding potential across northern third of Northern Territory late in the week.
Days after Neoguri takes a curved path over Japan and into the northern Pacific, much cooler air will drive southeastward across the Midwest and into the Northeast.
Neoguri continues to weaken over Japan, but it still poses dangers with heavy rain and possible mudslides.
Heat-related dangers will be on the rise over the weekend for much of the Northwest as scorching heat settles in.

Pockets of potentially flooding rain, hail, and unseasonably cool air will not be quick to leave central and eastern Europe.
